I hired Mr. Steve Vondran for a software infringement case, and he was a tremendous help to our organization. With Mr. Vondrans' guidance and experience, we were able to reach a fair resolution for all parties involved. I would be sure to recommend hiring Mr. Vondran for any of your software infringement related cases, he is the only one I would trust.

Steve was able to rightfully negotiate and close an BSA audit case for our business. We appreciated his efforts. It is important to stay in regular communication with each other during this process.

For a minimal consultation fee, Steve quickly gave me the practical information I needed to put a copyright troll (my opinion of the firm) behind me for about 1/3 of what they wanted and without agreeing to liability or signing an NDA. He also offered a fixed cost to fight if I needed to, and that was very reasonable. if the troll didn’t take my minimal offer, I absolutely would have been comfortable going that way. The knowledge and backup plan empowered me to negotiate from a position of strength and not be a profit source for the troll.

Started 2020 with a subpoena to my ISP from Strike 3 Holdings in a Florida court. Found Steve online and got in contact with his firm. If you've gotten one of these and spend some time poking around online - you'll find Steve's videos about these cases really informing. His videos on how a Motion To Quash works breaks the process down pretty well including the pros/cons of going down this path vs settlements.
His firm said Strike 3 was previously filing in Federal courts but have had their cases tossed out, and only in 2020 have they been starting to file at the state level. Their firm did not practice in Florida, but was able to find another lawyer for me to file a Motion To Quash and within a week the case was dismissed.

Steve and his office of professionals stepped in to stop a action against me by another attorney whose main objective is to scare and settle. He had the right experience with such matters, acted professionally and soothed my fear that I'd face extensive legal costs as a result of an unjustified action by the opposing attorney. I highly recommend his services for anyone that might face legal issues that jeopardize their well beings and livelihood.

I received a notice in the mail from my internet service provider notifying me that my personal information was being subpoenaed by a company called Strike 3 Holdings.
Strike 3 filed this in a Florida court (I live in CA) and I only had about a business week to decide what to do before my ISP had to turn over my info. I immediately went into panic mode and searched the web. You will find many ISP defense lawyers (I called many) but Steve was the only one willing to speak to me right away and to a great extent. He took great care in talking me down and explaining to me what my rights were. Strike 3 is a notoriously shady company (AKA troll company) with questionable tactics. The cases they filed in Florida which my IP address unfortunately was included in, are their most shady yet (from what I have learned). Steve helped me decide that finding a Florida lawyer to file a Motion to Quash and protect my information was the best remedy available (Steve does not practice in Florida, therefore he could not do this for me). Steve helped me vet the lawyer that I found and furthermore he actually communicated and coordinated with my Florida lawyer to help bolster my Motion. I received news last night that Strike 3 dismissed their case in response to my Motion to Quash.
If I had the option to hire Steve I absolutely would have. He took a great amount of care and interest in my case and had no obligation to do so. I have no doubt in my mind that if you are in this situation Steve has your best interests in mind and is extremely knowledgeable in these cases.

I would highly recommend Steve. When I first got notified that there was a copyright infringement case against me, I was terrified. After spending hours reading up on it I got even more scared. As recommended by all of the websites, I sought out legal consultations. Most of which claimed to defend you against such claims, how ever up calling them, every single one seemed to push me towards settling with the plaintiffs. Just so you are aware the minimum that they can ask for is $750 per infringement which can add up very fast. Part of the "settling" process involves giving them my bank statements, tax returns, etc. This did not sit well with me so I continued to get consultations from all of the lawyers that popped up in Google, yeah it's the same 8-9 lawyers. They all told me the same thing, either quash, and/or settle, fighting it wasn't even an option. Then I spoke with Cameron, one of Steve's aides who informed me that Steve had experience and success defending these cases and offered me a very reasonable rate far cheaper than any settlement would have been. I didn't interact directly with Steve and primarily contacted Cameron and Lisa in the process. Steve was able to get my case dismissed in about a month after signing up for representation. Every thing was handled well and I was kept in the loop of big developments. You can also look on the various legal sites that post case information for each district, in my state of California Steve shows up as representing various people with similar cases and getting their successfully cases dismissed. I looked as far back as I could and I couldn't find any other bit torrent copyright lawyers popping up, only Steve's name ever showed up in the results which should tell you something. Thank you so much Steve.

Steve Vondran was instrumental in assisting my small architecture firm to resolve the licensing requirements with AutoDesk for three AutoCAD licenses. I felt very confident in his experience and expertise in finding a positive solution with AutoDesk and their attorney. I highly recommend Steve.
